RELEASE: Rep. Jon Koznick Statement on Budget Forecast Showing Looming Budget Deficit

Wednesday, December 6, 2023

ST. PAUL— State Representative Jon Koznick, R-Lakeville, issued the following statement on the November Budget and Economic Forecast released today showing a looming deficit in the next biennium.

“In less than a year, Democrats blew through an entire $18 billion budget surplus, raised taxes by $10 billion and still managed to spend Minnesota into a projected budget deficit,” said Koznick. “Today’s report is all the evidence anyone needs to know that Democrats’ tax and spend agenda is destroying Minnesota and family budgets. Now more than ever, we need to return balance and fiscal responsibility to St. Paul. Minnesota families cannot afford another year of one-party control.”
